Loyola University / Communication Internships

Sports – Journalism, marketing, public relations

The Tampa Sports Authority (TSA) is an agency that manages Raymond James Stadium and three municipal golf courses in Tampa, FL. Raymond James Stadium is the home of the 2009 Super Bowl, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the University South Florida Bulls football and the Outback Bowl.

The TSA stadium communications department is seeking two one-year assistants. One candidate will be selected as a communications and marketing assistant, and should have a background in communications, marketing, journalism, or public relations. The second candidate will be selected as a visual communications assistant, and should have a background in communications, basic HTML code, photography, and graphic design.

The TSA requests interested candidates are graduating seniors or graduate students with a minimum 3.0 grade point average in Communications, Journalism, Public Relations, or Visual Communications. The internships/assistantships are a one year program which requires a weekly commitment of at least 40 hours. Some weekends and evenings will be required for event management duties.

At the stadium, we have as few as one event and as many as five events per month. Please be advised that we are considered an entertainment venue and as such, must reserve many weekends and/or evenings for our events. In addition, we feel the experience and contacts that are gained while working with the Tampa Sports Authority offers a great opportunity for someone entering the workforce.
